About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The purpose of this qualification is to provide the addiction sector with qualified workers who have specialist knowledge and skills required to contribute to, and where appropriate carry out assessment, planning and intervention for people with addiction-related conditions.

The qualification is intended for learners who want to work in the addiction sector and those who want to build on their own relevant experience and gain, or be recognised for, the specialist knowledge and skills.
